. that is outside the margin of error. there is a solid majority of ohio voters say they think governor romney's policies will benefit the rich. only 9 percent say the middle class will be benefited. less than a third think the policies will treat everyone the same. with president obama, 8 percent say it is helping the rich and the rest divided equally. that is not good for governor romney. this comes after the secretly recorded video of governor romney, saying 47 percent feel they are owed everything by the government and they will never take "responsibility." carl cameron, the campaign dispute as lot of the numbers. >>carl: they do. they point to the fact that real clear politics has five points for an advantage when you average all the polls. the bigger dispute is how most of the public commercial polls are being continue. they argue that the sample, or the personal of democrats in the pool of voters that are surveyed, is artificially inflated. in one poll, it assumes that the democratic registration will be nine percentage points higher than republicans and romney campaign says that is not
delivering key speeches on u.s. foreign policy. ing in fact, mr. romney is about to speak in minutes. governor romney spent yesterday attacking mr. obama for international crises from the killing of americans in libya to the anti-american uprising in much of the muslim world. is this missile test a new talking point? the former chief speechwriter for george w. bush and his defense secretary donald rumsfeld. he joins us from the american enterprise institute in wash where he writes on foreign policy and defense issues. good morning. >> good morning. how are you? >> i'm good. thank you so much for joining us. this is a chance for mr. romney to look presidential at a time when polls show strong support for mr. obama's foreign policy is slipping. you are a former speechwriter. what does governor romney need to say today? >> well, it is interesting because president obama -- just a few weeks ago president obama was boasting about his foreign policy achievements and mocking mitt romney for how little foreign policy experience he has. it is a difference what a couple of weeks makes. as you
with a president romney and foreign policy and next four years with a president obama foreign colorado. what do you foresee as the difference and where are they similar? >> oh, i think the difference will be significant. normally the republican and the democratic party have really within wibeen within the 40 yaro use a seasonal figure of speech. in the case of this president, we're not. he's way, way over in terms of the policy. governor romney without doubt understands that our country is exceptional. he recognizes the role we've played in the world. he believes the world is a better place if we're a participant in that world, and recognizes that it is not for us to go around the world apologizing and ringing our hands. what's called the arab spring is something happening in the islamic world. it's not arab only, because it's happening in a good many other countries as you know well. it's not spring, but it's summer and fall. it's going to be winter. it is a significant shift on the part of a lot of people in a lot of countries, who are encouraged and see the rise of islamist nonsecular forces in
this was the mitt romney that david brooks has wanted to see all along, yut lining policy, fluent on the topics. talk about the president for a second, steve. there has been a lot of consternation and critique in certain corners about the fact that the president isn't meeting with any world leaders. on one point on "the view" talking about what happened in terms of the death of ambassador chris stevens and your assessment of whether this was a good move? >> well, look, first of all, on the way he phrases the things on 60 minutes when he talked about the bump in the road he gave his political opponents ammunition. i don't think there's going to be a long-term effect. the issues raised this week about he should have met with netanya netanyahu, other world leaders, there's some political vulnerability and republicans are probably correct to pick up on that. i think the most significant thing about the noise that's being made about all this is that i think we have eight or ten polls now that have shown on the question of the economy, which was supposed to be the element of the romney campaign, vote
on the turmoil in the middle east. also, mitt romney talking aid, trade and more drilling down on foreign policy. we're going to hear what he's saying. and the news many homeowners have been waiting for years to hear. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> a brief break from the verbal sparring, the white house race. president obama stepped back in the global spotlight in new york today addressing the united nations assembly. he spoke at length about the turmoil in the middle east touting diplomacy and coalition building as the solution to the crisis to the region that's been vexing his administration. jessica yellin is traling with the president in new york. jessica, give us an update. what did the president say? >> reporter: wolf, when the president spoke here he had two major audiences, a global audience and a domestic audience. voters listening now to foreign policy issues with a new ear and a new eye after this violence in libya. and the president addressing it all just six weeks out from the election. at the united nations, president obama used the world stage to declare. >>
. the president is facing a fierce foreign policy attack from romney right now. is this part of the romney campaign reboot we've been hearing a lot about? >> it absolutely is, zoraida. the bumps in the road quote from "60 minutes" have handed the romney campaign an opportunity to talk about something other than his tax returns or that fund-raising video where he yet sized 47% of americans. this has taken over the economy has the main thrust of the romney campaign message. they're hitting obama hard on this. for example, listen to what paul ryan, romney's running mate, had to say about obama's foreign policy yesterday while campaigning in ohio, zoraida. >> i think the president on too many occasions has deferred our foreign policy leadership to the u.n. security council, to the u.n., this means russia and china get to veto what we want to do. why do we want to give them that kind of clout over our national security interests? >> the goal here is to paint president obama as projecting weakness. ryan yesterday compared the situation in the middle east to tehran in 1979. you know, calling to m
. on campaign policy, governor romney and president obama sparring yesterday, that is how the headlines played. nicholas burns will be coming to us live from boston to take your calls. the former undersecretary of state for political affairs in the bush administration. the speech that we were referring to comes up at 10:30 a.m. eastern time. this will be at the un general assembly. we will stay with several other peaches -- speeches throughout the morning. ronald, good morning. caller: good morning, c-span. lots of republicans call in without looking at all the facts. i do not agree with obama's policies, i am a democrat, but i do agree with the fact that he is making a change, a definite change. mitt romney is not the candidate to be the next president. if he does, this country will turn into what he wants it to turn into, and that would be a business. which is not what this country is. thank you. host: more reaction to the speeches this morning from the editorial page of "the wall street journal." they have this headline, quoting the iranian president -- host: reaction from "the new york tim
the president and mitt romney in the same city giving dueling foreign policy speeches. the romney campaign season opening in the wake of the terror attack in libya questions about the president's mideast policy. now as you note both men here in the battleground of ohio today sort of shadowing one another, domestic issues more the focus of course here in the midwest. 18 electoral votes in ohio. no republican has won the white house without winning this state first. as you know "the new york times" cbs battleground poll shows the president up 10 points. 53 to 4 3-point it. there is a lot of talk about republicans that there has been an over sam blink of democratic voters and the votes are being screwed against the romney campaign. nonetheless if you look at "the new york times" battleground poll, for example, previously the president only had a single digit lead here in ohio, now up to a double digit lead. even if it's off a little bit the bottom line is the trajectory is favoring the president at least for now arthel. arthel: on top of all that i should say the economy there in ohio seems t
and mitt romney gave foreign-policy speeches yesterday in new york. on this morning's washington journal, " we talk about foreign policy in the presidential race with a former undersecretary of state. morning, nicholas burns, former undersecretary of state from 2005 to 2008 for the george w. bush administration, currently teaching as a professor of diplomacy and international politics at harvard. thank you for joining us. you heard the speeches from new york and the play on these doing foreign policy points, what is your take away as far as each candidate and what they had to say? guest: it is very interesting the foreign policy has made a comeback in this campaign. it is a good thing for the americans who live in this world. i thought that the president gave a very soft speech yesterday. covering a lot of ground, focusing on the middle east and these tragic events that took place two weeks ago, the assassination of the ambassador and his diplomatic colleagues in libya. president made two important points, saying that americans obviously want to show great religious tolerance for the vie
york city right now. carl, was it expected mitt romney would start the day on foreign policy? >> reporter: well, sure. clinton global initiative virtually guaranteed that. after the terror attacks in benghazi that left the u.s. ambassador dead the mr. romney was clear he would give additional foreign policy speeches in today's speech in front. cgi. we can expect him toe be particularly critical are president for what romney has said has been an inadequate assertion of american values overseas during this mounting violence across the middle east and north africa. this morning at this event with president clinton mr. romney joked about how nice it is occasionally to have introduction from bill clinton and suggested he will wait for the bounce. a reference to the one that president obama got after the democratic national convention insofar clinton's speech was the one best received there. romney holding his partisan punches talked a lot about the world's problems. he says he has a plan to deal with u.s. foreign aid would in essence link it to trade and develop nations willing to
. >> governor romney's speech at the clinton global initiative had a narror focu ren ai proposing a new policy for overseas contributions. >> the aim of a much larger share of our aid must be the promotion of work and the fostering of free enterprise. nothing we can do a a nation ceesat more effectively and permanently than sharing the insight that lies at the foundation of america's own economy. and that is that free people pursuing happiness in their own ways, build a stron and vedut a new approach for a new era. >> governor ed rendell, two candidates both playing the role of statesman at the same time in the same city or ratively the same time in theame city. president oba, obviously, had the heavier ftsctuay the president and the commander in chief and the events in the middle east has increased the load in terms of what he must demonstrate to the rest of the world. what did you make of his addre to the u.n. general assembly? did he effectively make the case for americ did he effectively outline aie nat hadick atwoli to alawe america and the middle east? >> i thought you saw both men at th
a more effective version. as we carry on george w. bush's policies. on israel i think some of the romney charges are accurate. the fact is that the president has gratuitously alienated the prime minister of israel on an issue frankly was not relevant, which was settlements. and i don't think, unlike bill clinton, and george w. bush, that this president has the kind of emotional sensitivity that think is required to create some measure of partnership with the israelis even though netanyahu is a difficult guy. on syria, look, let's be clear. we're coming off the two longest wars in american history. the last thing we need is another military adventure that isn't thought through very clearly. on iran, no matter who is president we have got big trouble coming. israelis rightly need to figure out a way to prevent iran from enriching uranium. the question is, whether or not you can do that short of war? and right now, neither barack obama nor mitt romney, nor benjamin netanyahu have answers to that. so --. >> brought us through some very important regions in the middle east and it is such a bi
on the economy, the corner stone of romney's campaign and those voters also say they believe romney's policies will favor the rich. >> there's been a consistent line of afact from the president. >> i do not believe that another round of tax cuts for millionaires are going to bring good jobs back to ohio. >> reporter: it features promptly in mr. obama's television ads which has saturated the air waves. the president and his team are out spending the romney team on television though both campaigns have spent more here than in any other battleground state. the president and groups supporting him have spent $49.9 million in ohio while romney and outside groups have spent $42.5 million. the romney camp says it's not bothered by poll numbers say they have confidence by their own internal polling and believe they are making inroads in ohio and message of lower spending and debt. >> the status quo has not worked. we can't afford four more years of barack obama. we won't have four more years of barack obama. >> now if you had any doubt about the importance of ohio look at the campaign schedule today. t
have heard and hear him write these past few months? is there a romney doctrine on foreign policy? how would you encapsulate it? guest: i don't know if there is a romney doctrine yet. governor romney is a very smart, successful person. my guess is that it is not the issue he wants to emphasize in the campaign. once the campaign to be about the economy and the unemployment rate. it is a difficult position for a republican to be running against a democrat who has a strong record on national security. that has been difficult for the romney campaign. i worked for republicans and democrats in various administrations, so i am not a political person. but it seems to me that republicans always try to run to the right of the democrats, and sometimes accused democrats of being weak on a national security. in this election you have president obama, who has taken us out of iraq, president obama who has waged a very tough war against al qaeda, has gone after the al qaeda leadership, notably osama bin laden, who has taken out some of the terrorists in yemen, including awlaki, an important terrorist
. >> absolutely. >> one of romney's top foreign policy advisors said the other day that obama has made the united states look impo nent the world. dot facts bear that out. >> i disagree with that. i disagree with that. the suggestion that somehow america could or even should be in the drivers seat in the arab spring is inherently ridiculous. i mean what happened in egypt was done by the people, the young people, primarily, in tahrir square. then the egypt that was left having lost its autocratic superstructure was still an egypt, just look at the distribution of the population, most likely to produce an islamist government, with which it did. all along the way we should try to maximize our values and our interests, including freedom and human rights, and not just majority rule but minority rights, and individual rights. but we couldn't control it, and we shouldn't. and i expect that's what president morsi will say here tomorrow. but if you look at libya, we had more opportunities to influence it, and we did. and we influenced it in a very positive way. and they like us more than a lot of people d
or e-mail them to us. >>> the president's approach to foreign policy is what mitt romney is talking about. >> he is bouncing on president obama for referring to the recent attack at the consulate in libya as quote bumps in the road. >>> the developments in the middle east are bumps in the road. that was by reaction. we had an ambassador assassinated, we had a muslim brotherhood a member elected to the presidency of egypt 20,000 people have been killed in syria. we have trouble in pakistan. of course iran is that much closer to having the capacity to build a nuclear weapon. these are not bumps in the road. it is time for a president to be shaping events not just be mers il. i will get america on track for the kind of leadership we need so we can shape the future of this part of the world and keep america strong. >> the white house responding to his criticism saying republicans are searching toer something to grab on to. the president's views are clear and strong. >>> they are talking and hitting romney on his plan for the economy. during his much criticized appearance on "the view."
, governor mitt romney is attacking president obama's foreign policy record at a campaign rally in colorado. romney said america needs a president who will shape events and not be at their mercy. jan crawford is in denver, and jan, what happened to the reset that the romney campaign said they were going to do, talking about economy and jobs? instead, it seems like they're talking about foreign policy. >> right. it was foreign policy yesterday. although romney has said he's going to be drawing a sharper contrast with the president. we sure saw that here in denver. he hit the president hard for saying recent events in the middle east were bumps in the road and he also criticized the administration's response to those attacks in libya. >> the world looks at the events going on, they don't see these events as bumps in the road. these are lives. this is humanity. this is freedom. >> reporter: campaigning in colorado, romney was referring to comments the president made on "60 minutes", saying recent events in the middle east were bumps in the road. the white house was talking about recent events
's -- krauthammer talks about -- romney does talk about foreign policy, a 20th century entitlement system, he talks about america and the need to be unapologetic. he talks about all these things. the problem romney has is he can't go a week talking about these things because he is tripping over his own words and gaffes whether the clint eastwood moment or running to criticize obama for the libya attacks and each and every time he tries to build momentum around these themes, build a larger place to get obama out -- he over shadows. >> you just said theme. that is what charles krauthammer says. he said if there were an over arching thing mitt romney was carrying from foreign policy -- >> you can only build that theme if you do it day in and day out and obama has done his theme which is romney is this rich guy who is going to outsource everything. he's been tripped up every now and then but by and large has been consistent. mitt romney has been his own worst enemy. >> that is the problem kelly. they don't have a big over arching theme as charles krauthammer says that carries them through a week where
he's going to be talking foreign policy at the clinton global initiative later today as will romney and then it's back on the campaign trail. both men are going to be campaigning tomorrow in the battleground state of ohio. so a lot of people of course accusing the president of putting his reelection efforts over foreign policy, over the u.n., but, you know, at some point it is just american politics. that's how it is, right? >> absolutely. he has spoken to some world leaders before this general assembly meeting. so we'll continue to report the controversy. thanks, kristin reporting live outside the white house. >>> in king george county, virginia, a memorial to members of the military now stands in front of a landfill. jerry lynn smith lost her husband in iraq. then she found out some of his remains are were among those classified as medical waste and dumped in the landfill on virginia's northern neck. she was there yesterday as a plaque was unveiled. smith has already had some success in getting the military to make changes to try and ensure something like this never happens again.
be rather jaded. but the fact of the matter is what mitt romney is trying to convey is is that his policies will be better. you might like president obama as a person, carol, but his policies haven't worked for the past four years. >> some republicans think that's not such a good strategy. they think that mitt romney should be just as hard on president obama as he has been in the past and the softening of issues only confuses republican voters, especially core voters. >> it's not his job to be outwardly partisan. he's supposed to be the states man. he's the one supposed to be talking about ideas. allow the super pacs to be do that, these outside groups tending hundreds of millions of dollars on television ads, let them be the ones who go out and attack barack obama, not mitt romney. so in many ways i think there's a level of frustration with the romney campaign from conservatives that it has not been as effective. the unemployment rate is over 8%. republicans think they should be winning and right now it's neck and neck if not a bit of a lead for president obama. >> of course the presidenti
the president on foreign policy, right? >> they are. both mitt romney and paul ryan are making the case that the president has been unclear, lacks transparency, and seems to be reluctant to refer to the attacks in libya as terrorism. they further distance themselves, they didn't actually buy into senator john barrasso's assertion that it's a cover-up, but they're clearly upset to see they see the whole thing as further illustration of the president's inannual to assert the u.s. leadership and strength clearly around the world. watch. >> the white house and the president are continuing not to admit what their own admission is saying and i think it's pretty clear that they haven't wanted to level with the american people. look, we expect candor from the president and transparency. and he continues to refuse to acknowledge what is said by the other members of the administration. this was a terrorist attack. we were attacked apparently by al-qaeda and it's a very troubling development. >> this is part of the story of when we project weakness overseas by gutting the military, with the presid
! >> mitt romney and paul ryan have the experience and record and they have the public policy plans to put america back to work. before we give a warm miami valley welcome to the next president and vice president of the united states i want you to give a warm welcome to a colleague of mine and friend who snuck across the border from kentucky today. he is a doctor who understands the dangers of obama care. he is a fiscal conservative who understands the nature of the record debts and deficits and understands they are a danger to our country and kids. finally, folks, he is someone who believes that we can not afford another four years of this. gentlemen, i give you mr. paul. >> anybody think it is time for a new president? >> anybody here think like i do that obama care is still unconstitutional? >> yeah. >> anybody here offended and mortified to see people around the world burning the american flag? >> yeah! >> president obama's response? send them more money. >> boo! >> they are attacking our embassies, burning our flag, torturing and imprisoning the man who helped us get bin laden. what i
running the foreign policy establishment if you elected mitt romney -- these folks led us into the most disastrous foreign policy decision in a generation which was the invasion of iraq. it empowered iran, it created a trillion dollars of debt charged on the national credit card, it killed more than 4,000 americans, it wounded more than 30,000, it left hundreds of thousands of iraqis dead or displaced. and yet these folks want us to hand the keys of foreign policy back to them? it's, it's -- i mean, the nerve of the individuals who drug us into the worst foreign policy disaster in the middle east in a generation, to say that they somehow understand this region better is, it's laughable, frkly. >> well, you mentioned syria. how -- there's a lot of pressure for the administration to get more involved in syria. how do you think the administration is responding, how should it respond? >> well, on this issue it's interesting. you know, if you actually peel away a lot of governor romney's positions on a lot of issues, there's not a lot of difference between him and president obama. in fact, s

that option off the table. >> seems like a little softer stance there from mitt romney coming out now, too. no talk of red lines. so what's going on overall? >> well, clearly the president's policy is the one that everyone is coalescing around. even mitt romney finds it hard to disagree with a notion that we should have a diplomatic solution. some of his advisers like john bolton, however, argued for bombing yesterday. but that flies in the face of a broad swath of bipartisan security experts who argue that bombing iran would facility their acquisition of a nuclear weapon. >> okay, joel rubin. many thanks for coming on. >> thank you. >> office politics. savannah guthrie tells me about her latest interview with president obama and the questions she wish she had asked him. why should our wallets tell us what our favorite color is? every room deserves to look great. and every footstep should tell us we made the right decision. so when we can feel our way through the newest, softest, and most colorful options... ...across every possible price range... ...our budgets won't be picking the style.

making that argument than romney has trying to say, no, no, no, obama's policies have made it worse. >> john harwood? >> well, gene, i would say, i think chuck's point is the right one, which is that he's got to connect bad circumstances in the economy to what obama's done. but even more important is connecting something better in the future with his own policies. the idea that tax cuts, which he hasn't been talking about all that much. he barely mentioned them in his convention speech, that's going to produce the kind of growth he's talked about. and as you know, that's not an easy case to make. some of the evidence suggests from the clinton years, it doesn't produce that. >> yeah, i agree, john. i think he does have to make that case, though. he has to make some sort of affirmative case. i really don't think it's enough for romney to point at obama and say he's doing a bad job. that hasn't gotten him over the hump. and i do think he has to say, look, here's what i'm going to do and here's how it's going to make things better. and if -- if he's going to talk about tax cuts, he's go
, either mitt romney or paul ryan. or in a campaign ad specifically on this tax policy center analysis. now, the heritage foundation has a very detailed pushback in which it says that the tax policy center is off its rocker and that essentially that it is as rich said cooking the books because it is choosing which deductions and credits are on the table and off the table in its analysis and that mitt romney's plan when you deal with congress could eventually get to the point where you get to the number needed to keep it revenue neutral. and you can get there. but the tax policy center doesn't and so they get to the point where well you can't get to the number so he's going to have to raise taxes on the middle class. dagen: why aren't they fighting back with ads? >> i have no clue. i mean i really have no chlue. i think a lot of republicans are saying the same thing. we are one week away from the debate in denver and there will have to be some pushback because you know the president will be armed with that very tax policy center stat. dagen: some people are talking about the debates that thi
